I'll tell you what's wrong with this country

It's those infernal lemonade stands. Those kids need to be locked up. Thank goodness our police are up to the task.
In Stapleton, Colorado, Jennifer Knowles' three boys set up a lemonade stand to benefit a charity organization called Compassion International. Just in the nick of time, someone called the police to complain that the boys were running a lemonade stand without a permit. So the police showed up to shut this little illegal operation down.

In Overton, Texas, (near Houston) police and code enforcement officers shut down a stand opened by two sisters hoping to raise money to take their father to a waterpark on Father’s Day.

In East Hampton, New York, Jerry Seinfeld and his 12-year-old son were having fun raising money for the nonprofit Baby Buggy. Crack local police had to put a stop to it because the Seinfelds were violating a village code that prohibits “peddling.”
Recognizing a marketing opportunity, The CountryTime brand of lemonade is taking a stand by introducing Legal-Ade: a crack team ready to straighten out lemonade stand-related permits and fines. Legal-Ade will defend kids’ right to a lemonade stand and all the benefits they bestow. The company is offering parents the chance to apply for reimbursement of up to $300 for either permit fees to run their children’s lemonade stands—or the cost of fines associated with those penalized.

This is a wonderful thing for our young, ignorant children. They get to watch a police state in action and they get to watch a global conglomerate hustling for bucks.

There is absolutely no evidence that Country Time is giving kickbacks to the police
